Re: PGM 20th!

I'm betting PGM100 or PGM200.

Re: PGM 20th!

I really hope they manage to keep it a secret. I like being spoiled ahead of time but I also like being surprised, and this would be a cool surprise.

Personally I'd love to see a production version of that cool pink guitar he played in Racer X, although Jay said the new guitar would be a reissue and I'm pretty sure that was never a production model.

Re: PGM 20th!

There was always going to be a reissue, I told you that in the [whatever] other thread, I just didn't tell you it was a PGM But it wasn't supposed to be the rediculously priced 20th, that was to be another model. Nothing is ever written in stone until the show, and then it can always be erased! But if they've changed this, I'll be surprised.

Re: PGM 20th!

yeah I bet it will eb the 100 or 200. Probably the 100 since it was the first. Those are the only two with the "vibrant" colors Ibanez on the Ibanez Forum mentioned.
Thatll be awesome but I bet itll be way out of my budget haha

Re: PGM 20th!

if it's a PGM100 reissue, i just hope they'll do it without those horrible black plastic pickup rings.

Re: PGM 20th!

I'd like the pickups direct mount, but this won't be a reissue, but a remake

Re: PGM 20th!

Considering it is a faithful reissue (BUT with a 5-piece neck) and a guitar PG would actually play nowadays, I go with one of the hardtail PGMs (releasing a PGM with a trem today would be like releasing a JEM with a hardtail).

So, all the PGMs I'm aware of (not counting in the acoustic, budget and anniversary ones):
PGM100 --> tremolo, so Fail.
PGM200 --> hardtail, no reverse headstock, vibrant colors, so maybe an option?
PGM300 --> tremolo, no vibrant colors, reverse headstock, Fail.
PGM301 --> Just got rid of that one, no vibrant colors, reverse headstock, Fail.
PGM400 --> Vintage tremolo and vibrant colors? (candy apple with off-white Fs) Looks kinda flat to me, so Fail.
PGM500 --> Hardtail with same colors as the PGM400 and with an reverse headstock, Fail.
PGM600 --> The Iceman shaped PGM. It does fit the description..
PGM700 --> The 'Violin' shaped PGM. What was he thinking in the first place? Epic fail.
PGM800 --> Natural with red Fs, so not really vibrant, and with an reverse headstock. Fail.
PGM900 --> The Talman shaped PGM. Iconic enough to be a PGM20TH? Prolly Fail.

So I guess it is the PGM200, but it could still be a hardtailed PGM100 or anything else with paintes F-holes. Actually I'm clueless.

Re: PGM 20th!

Not sure if it's 100% correct but I believe the 200 was a Japan only release.

Heyyyyy! I love my 500CA! No fail there!

Oh, you mean as the possible PGM20th. Sorry, was ready for a fight. :P

or they could still go for a PGM100 with something to block the trem if needed (as it was on some EdgePro equipped sigs IIRC), or maybe not, as if Paul decides to take one on tour he'll have someone blocking the trem.
or maybe they go for a PGM100 with the trem route filled with a chunk of wood and a fixed Gotoh screwed in there, like Paul's...

Yes, and that's a problem? It doesn't mean it doesn't exist and couldn't be re-released
